Common Financial Scams

Consumer Reports has published another article about common financial and retail scams that people need to be aware of. It’s important to read up on this stuff from time to time as con artists are always changing their methods in an effort to stay a step ahead of the game. Sure, most of this sounds like common sense to people who are computer and Internet savvy, but I know a lot of older folks that would fall for these ruses.

Anyway, just be aware of what’s happening out there!
